Windows 10 Themes Now Available!

In October, Microsoft gave us an insight of some of the upcoming features for Windows 10 Creators Update. One of the features was Windows 10 themes from the Windows Store.

Now the first set of Windows 10 themes are live on the Windows Store and users can install them!

But…..

The themes are not supported by Windows 10 yet, even if you are a Windows Insider running the latest Insider preview builds. So at the moment, you can’t actually use the themes.

Microsoft will, however, likely add support for themes to the Windows 10 Insider Preview in early 2017, so you should be able to try them out very soon.

Here’s the “Beauty of Britain 2” theme by Sean Byrne:

It is worth noting that you can actually try the themes out right now if you want by heading over to WindowsApps in Program Files and then finding the theme files where you’ll see a .themepack which will get installed once you run it.However, if you are not a power user, you probably won’t be able to go through all of this — so you should just wait for the official release which should happen fairly soon if you are in the Insider program.

You can download some of the themes below:

Keep in mind that there are a handful of other themes on the Windows Store which you can find if you look around a bit.
